Powerful Drama About The Assassination Of A Black Panther Revolutionary Looks Great

Powerful Drama About The Assassination Of A Black Panther Revolutionary Looks Great
By Paul Moore

In terms of the most versatile and gifted actors of the modern era, the names of Daniel Kaluuya and Jesse Plemons are right at the top of the list.

After grabbing the world's attention in Get Out - for which he received an Oscar nomination, Kaluuya has shown his versatility by starring in the likes of Black Panther, Queen & Slim, and Widows.

As for Plemons, fans of Friday Night Lights and Breaking Bad knew that he was a gifted actor, but he's quickly establishing himself in the category of 'he's good in everything, even if it's a bad film'.

Check out his performances in Game Night and Fargo if you need further proof.

Well, the two men are teaming up in their next film Judas and the Black Messiah, which tells the story of Fred Hampton, Chairman of the Illinois Black Panther Party, and his fateful betrayal by FBI informant William O'Neal.

Chairman Fred Hampton was 21 years old when he was assassinated by the FBI, who coerced a petty criminal named William O’Neal to help them silence him and the Black Panther Party. But they could not kill Fred Hampton’s legacy and, 50 years later, his words still echo…louder than ever.

I am a revolutionary!

The film also stars LaKeith Stanfield (Atlanta, The Girl in the Spider’s Web), Dominique Fishback (The Hate U Give, The Deuce), Ashton Sanders (The Equalizer 2, Moonlight) and Martin Sheen (The Departed, The West Wing) among others.

Given the rather disrupted nature of film distribution at moment, a release date hasn't been set in stone yet but Judas and the Black Messiah will be released in theatres.

Take a look at what's in store in the trailer below.
